The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 38

The Good:
A great Rosh Hashana in NY. Time with mom, delicious food, wonderful weather and services, and a meal with the family, too.

The Random:
My uncle teases my mom about flying to Oregon all the time because she often has a layover. Over Rosh Hashana, he joked that a wagon train would be faster and I went "the Oregon Trail!" I laughed SO hard when I saw this old game in the teacher's room when school resumed!

The Fun:
We've launched our first math unit. The kiddos are eating up the math centers! So far, the place value centers are all a hit.
